Dr. Adel Pezeshki obtained his Ph.D. in Veterinary Sciences (physiology discipline) from Ghent University, Belgium in 2010. He then completed his postdoctoral training in nutritional physiology in 2015 at University of Calgary, Canada. In 2016, he joined Oklahoma State University, where he is currently an assistant professor in the Department of Animal and Food Sciences. Dr. Pezeshki teaches Principles of Animal Nutrition, Nutritional Physiology and Metabolism, Macronutrient Nutrition and Voluntary Intake and Basic Nutrition for Pets. Dr. Pezeshki's research focuses on nutritional biochemistry of proteins and amino acids. In particular, he is interested in understanding the effect of individual amino acids and dietary proteins on energy balance and metabolism and their underlying mechanisms of action. The ultimate goal of Dr. Pezeshki's dual purpose research is to develop novel strategies to improve the metabolic health and growth in both animals and humans.
